3D TV For the Masses = FAIL

Regarding the impending onslaught of 3D television (thanks a lot, Cameron), there are many industry analysts chiming in to speak their piece. Here's one take on it, courtesy of Minyanville:

Understandably, studios and electronics manufacturers are excited over the possibility of a new gimmick to fill theater seats and keep couch potatoes paying for cable. But they fail to realize that the cost will far outweigh the charm and, maybe, 3D is only a once-in-a-while treat. You know why nobody rides a roller coaster to work? Because not only would it lose its appeal after the first week, it's completely impractical.

This guy must be able to read minds because he just said what I've been thinking for years. 3D TV all the time? Ugh.

There is one exception to my 'meh' attitude toward 3D television though, and it's spelled with four letters: p-o-r-n. I am not ashamed to admit I secretly look forward to checking out some Buttslammers 9: The Final Chapter in all its three-dimensional goodness.

Anyway, you can read the rest of the article here.

Thanks for the link, Mike!
